Great Australian Horse Stories brings to life the exploits–funny, poignant and sometimes dramatic–of horses from all over the nation. Outback legends, loyal carthorses, spectacular high jumpers and trusty stock horses. Among them animals that have defied the odds to win–or simply to live.
Just as special are the people who make horses their lives: drovers and dressage riders, bush brumby runners, the famous horse handlers on film sets and rags-to-riches metropolitan trainers. Riders who have persevered through accident and adversity to stay in the saddle.
From the traditions of old-timers to new methods that challenge the way we think about horses, these stories capture the essence of that special bond between humans and horses. They will resonate with horse-lovers and anyone who enjoys a great Australian yarn.
